We have a great acceptable usage policy.  The problem is, management is
hesitant to enforce it.  They want concrete proof that the persons who's
computers are constantly being infected is being done by the person the
computer is assigned to.

We are using Sendmail and procmail for our mail system.  Squirrelmail uses
imap, I don't know if that makes tracking where the email was sent from
easier or harder?
